Stop, stop! There is a beautiful truck, stop! Like always distances can not be measured by hours, they turn into a full day ride for us. We past several road side arches, old rusty cars, and it rained and rained. Looks like we were not in America at all, so barren and so desolate and well, so poor. But there were interesting roadside stops like the Newspaper Rock. There were few people on the road outside this Canyonlands National Park so travelling was a joy.

Next stop would be Blanding and their Indian artifact museum. But we had to eat first. Picking up drinks and snack for the road at the supermarket, a lady advised that the best food can be had at the gas station across the street. Tacos? No. But I wanted a restaurant with table cloth. A full meal as we were not sure where the next eatery would be. So back a few miles, and into Homestead Steak House. No Table cloths but a decent looking place. At least it was in 1980’s. My order, a safe one, hamburger. How can they ruin a hamburger in a steak house! P.S. I just read the yelp views, one star was too much for this place by many. Should have known before! Well, we ate and with full stomach continued back on the road to the museum, The Edge of the Cedars State Park
